FILL THE VOID - Control Voiding Using Inline Vacuum Assisted Reflow

SMTA Space Coast Chapter
Is proud to present a Technical Meeting

"FILL THE VOID"
Control Voiding Using Inline Vacuum Assisted Reflow

 
 
Voids have been known for affecting the thermal characteristics and mechanical properties of a solder joint, hence affecting the reliability of the solder interconnect.   In RF applications, the locations and sizes of void in soldering can also influence the performance of signal transmission for high frequency applications.
 
The answer is vacuum reflow oven.  The vacuum reflow has been evolving and gaining attention in electronics assembly because of a desire to lower and even eliminate voids in solder joints of BTC.  The newer vacuum reflow technology, called continuous vacuum-assist reflow oven for high volume production, in which a vacuum chamber is placed between the last heated zone and the cooling zone in a standard convection reflow oven. 

 
This presentation discusses the reasons vacuum reflow system have generated interest to the electronic assembly industry, and presents an overview of the vacuum reflow process. In addition, the panelists share knowledge of various voiding effects from board design, solder paste selection, when implementing the inline vacuum reflow in the process
.
 

The Panelists:

Fred Dimock, Manager of Process Technology at BTU International  
Michael Haas - Product manager Kurtz Ersa
Chris D’Anniballe, Process Engineer at L3Harris Technologies Inc


Panelist BIOs
 
Fred Dimock
He holds an Associate Degree in Mechanical Design from Wentworth in Boston and a Bachelors Degree in Ceramic Engineering from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Alfred. His extensive experience in thermal processing and manufacturing includes positions at Corning, General Electric, and Osram-Sylvania before joining BTU.
 
Fred has assisted many companies with process refinements, and has authored numerous articles on lead free solder, process control, and the operation of continuous furnaces. His papers have been published in English, Chinese, and German. He received “The Best Vendor Presentation” award at the East China SMTA conferences in 2011 and 2012.
 
He has taught numerous SMTA solder reflow classes and participated in the 5-45 Subcommittee for the development of IPC-7801 Reflow Oven Process Control Standard.
Additionally he wrote the chapter on solder reflow for the Handbook of Electronic Assembly and A Guide to SMTA Certification
by Dr Lasky and Jim Hall.

 
He recently received Distinguished Speaker status at SMTA Guadalajara Mexico and is a key presenter for the SMTA Jump Start program for new engineers.

 
He is a key member of a vacuum reflow void reduction team that recently completed an in-depth experiment at the Universal Instruments Advanced Process Laboratory and has conducted a Vacuum Reflow Workshop at ACI Technologies.
